If there’s ever been a time to venture next to the Canadian border, this. Is. It!

Whether you’re a hockey fan or not, you’re not going to wanna miss this event. There will be something for everyone. And you don’t have to be outside all the time. There are activities in the Village as well as plenty to see. But don’t forget the rest of the town. 

Outdoor Activities

Hockey Village: The heart of the event, featuring the “Outlaw Rink” fthat allows the public to skate (with a helmet) during Hockey Day.  There’s also a mini skating path; a mini version of Warroad’s famous Riverbend Skating Path.  Northern Toboggan will be there with their hand-crafted wood toboggans for sledders to enjoy down a fun sledding hill.  The Hockeytown Lodge is a large, heated entertainment tent with food, drinks, vendors, and nightly music entertainment. There are fun igloos (not heated) and fire pits scattered throughout the Village.

Riverbend Skating Path: The iconic 5.5-mile natural ice rink along the Warroad River is accessible at Doc’s Harbor Inn. Skate rentals are available.
